'Showing receipts and offering seats'

Ok, so people are suggesting we have an official thread to discuss AI, rather than using the old one which has been going since Mariah announced she was on the panel... and I think that makes sense!

Let the mayhem commence!smiley: happy

It only feels likes yesterday that she signed up!! Times flies. I found out yesterday that it will be shown in Ireland and repeated twice the next day after its first airing on two different channels so I'm happy I'll get to watch it on TV. I was dreading the thought of only being able to watch it online because I probably would get sick of it after a while.

It premiers in the states at 8pm ET on the 16th. I presume there will be ways of watching/downloading it...

Thankfully Channel 5 have gotten it for the UK the following day at the same time.

It feels so weird that this is happening. Mariah's never been this accessible before, it kind of makes me uneasy that she'll be becoming a 'TV personality'.

So, I see Seacrest, Keith, Randy, and Nicki are all on shows like Leno and Ellen this week. I do not see Mariah listed as being on any of them. What gives?

Yeah that's a bit strange. She said she was ill so maybe that's why.

Mariah can promote while the show is on air too. It doesn't have to all be premiere week.
Sure, but it's odd that all of the judges (and even the host) are doing promo this week...except Mariah.

I believe it was mentioned that she has bronchitis, last week at the q & a.

Plus she did her part by promoting it on the Barbara Walters interview.

I can't wait to see her on TV. The best American Idol judge!!!

And some of the judges were also on shows last week; I saw Seacrest on Leno, for instance. Many of them will have been on 3-4 shows, while Mariah will have done one (and the week before). Considering her paycheck, it seems odd/unfair.

But, yeah, if she is sick, then fine. But didn't she get sick nearly a week ago? She should be better, unless it's really bad. Plus, some of these appearances were known weeks ago (i.e. before Mariah was sick) and her name wasn't showing while the other judges were.

Maybe it's in her contract that she doesn't have to hit the promo trail like crazy?

Coming from the person that always pushes promo Mariah is sick and recording a new Album. I think her health is a bit more important then AI promo. I'm sure as soon as she is feeling better she will join in the promo.

The Vegas rounds haven't even been taped yet. They were canceled last month and rumored to be rescheduled for this week. If she's too sick still to go on Leno for five minutes, then she might be too sick to do the Vegas rounds also.

I found this comment from Nigel very interesting

"Everybody I've ever seen live sings out of tune, even the greatest singers in the world. And of course if you make a single nowadays, they'll autotune it anyway. So is there more we should be discussing rather than, 'You're pitchy'? I'm so sick of that remark."

I personally feel if your a singer you should be able to sing live...in tune. But I guess American Idol is looking for something different this year.
